Fecal transplant is gaining acceptance worldwide as a treatment for C.diff.  There are also research trials going on around the world for other health conditions, particularly for IBD, IBS and autoimmune issues like rheumatoid arthritis.  Some countries do not regulate FMT and doctors are allowed to perform the protocol on whatever illness they feel is appropriate.  For those who live in a country that regulates FMT only for C.diff, you may want to seek out treatment at the Newbery Clinic in Argentina or the Taymount Clinic in the UK.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE USA OR CANADA:

As at April 2013 the US FDA classified fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) as an Investigational New Drug. This means that until FMT is formally approved, its use is restricted to the treatment of recurring Clostridium Difficle (C Diff). Canada has adopted the same stance as the USA.

However the FDA ruling does not stop doctors assisting you by screening your donor or advising you how to do FMT safely at home.

We encourage all those who are interested in doing a fecal transplant to seek out a doctor who is willing to guide you through the process, help with donor testing and be there to answer questions and address any issues that may come up during the process.  The list of physicians and clinics below are known providers of fecal transplants and some are willing to act as a resource or test donors.

We rely on YOU to help keep this list up to date.
If you find an error or want to add a physician to the list please let us know.

* US & Canadian doctors are only permitted to do FMT for patients with C diff that does not respond to multiple courses of antibiotics.   They may be willing to test your donor for DIY FMT if you have another condition and advise on the procedure, however they are not obliged to do so.  If you do not have C diff doctors are not permitted to do the procedure for you.
